President Stephen and all the members of the Board extend to all Rotarians and their families the very best of wishes for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to welcoming you all back from holidays and, if you have been lucky, travels.  2022 HAS to be better than either of the last 2 years!
An informal social night for all who are in town has been arranged for 6:00pm on Monday, 10 January, in the Bistro at the Stirling Hotel.
The first regular meeting of the Rotary Club of Stirling, though, is to be on Monday, 17 January.

Christmas Party in Mylor

A chill in the air did not deter anybody as a jovial group of Rotarians, partners and guests got a jump on the festive season over our Christmas Dinner at the stunning home of Mark Higgins.
Delicious roast chicken and pork, baked potatoes, 4 huge salad platters and traditional, Lions Pudding  with plenty of ice cream and custard (Yum!) ensured that no one left hungry!

Bunnings BBQs

Thursday, 23 December
A huge shout out to Andrew Cass, David Hogan, Malcolm Horton, Nick Kentish and John Norris who have signed up to cover the morning shift on Thursday, 23 December, next week. 
There is, however, still one urgent vacancy on the afternoon shift to support Colin Fraser, Rob Hill, Greg Russell and John Norris (who is already pulling a double shift!) 
We need one more so that John can just get a break sometime during the day on what is likely to be one of  our busiest this year!
To offer to fill the one remaining vacancy next Thursday, the 23rd in the afternoon, please click HERE


January 1, 2021 (New Year's Day)

So far we only have Greg Russell in the morning and Pauline Annear in the afternoon.

We know it is a big ask to have others volunteer on New Year's Day, but the opportunity to host this gig is just too good to miss out on.  Help us to prove to Bunnings that we can be relied on to support them now..and into the future.  Besides. it is a well known, scientifically proven fact that a snags done on the barbie are among the best known hangover cures!

We have 8 more shifts to fill (4 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon) so if you can make yourself available, PLEASE help out Greg and Pauline who have always (over)stretched themselves in service to the club.
